Urban Girl Squad joined the Aikido Kokikai of NYC Studio for a special combined Women’s Self-Defense and Introduction to Aikido Class. In this class, Gary Snyder Sensei, a sixth degree black belt in Kokikai Aikido, taught us simple strategies to instantly develop a stronger state of mind and body. We also learned movements and techniques to guide our actions in threatening situations. Snyder Sensei and his senior students demonstrated graceful Aikido moves that take down opponents twice their size!

Aikido is a mind-body martial art that teaches students how to stay calm and relaxed in fighting scenarios and find their strongest state in everyday life. Our teacher, Snyder Sensei, is a senior student of the founder of Kokikai Aikido, Shuji Maruyama Sensei. His studio offered this special Women’s Self-Defense class just for Urban Girl Squad.
